MAKE Newsletter

November 14, 2012

Every holiday season I pledge to make more gifts, but I always start too late. Don’t be like me! Check out Make: Projects for DIY gift ideas, like the longboard project below. Speaking of making, we're excited about MAKE's newly minted Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing, a special publication available now. We'll be talking about 3D printing on a Google+ hangout at 6pm PST on Nov. 15. The live broadcast at google.com/+make will coincide with the first of our International Maker Meetups, get-togethers designed to connect makers anywhere in the world. Hey, maybe I'll 3D print this year's gifts...
